Todd Frazier was a hero on Tuesday. The Reds rookie third baseman is in Pittsburgh for his team’s series against the Pirates this week and was out to lunch with a teammate when they noticed a man choking in the restaurant. “I was talking to [teammate Ryan Ludwick] and I see it out of the corner of my eye,” Frazier told MLB.com. “I said ‘I think that dude is choking over there.’ He was a little obese and there were two women side-by-side trying to give him the Heimlich. [Ludwick] said get over there because I was the closest one. So I went over there and was yelling at them to get out of the way. They did and I gave two pumps and it came out.” The man was choking on a big piece of steak, so it could have gotten pretty bad had Frazier not been there to help. “It was a big fat piece too, it was pretty insane,” Frazier said. “It was a good 30 seconds they were trying at least. “He paid for our lunch, which he didn’t have to do and said thanks a couple of times. It was pretty surreal. I have never done that before.” Looks like Todd has a new biggest fan. Incredibly, this is the second spectacular act by Frazier in the past few days. He also now has something in common with Jeremy Shockey. Maybe the saving moment will give Frazier some good karma for his game on Tuesday night.
